A)

During the past few decades four East Asian


economies - South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and
Hong Kong - have achieved the fastest rates of
economic growth the world has ever seen. In 1962
Taiwan stood between Zaire and the Congo on the
global ranking of income per head: by 1986 its
neighbors were Greece and Malta. In 1962 South
Korea was poorer than Sudan: by 1986 it was richer
than Argentina. Today the four "dragons" account
for 10 per cent of manufactured exports worldwide,
not far short of America's 12 per cent.
Understanding this miracle is the most urgent task in
development economics. But most economists are
content to cite the dragons as proof of their favorite
theories - whatever those theories may be. Free
marketers point to the dragons' reliance on private
enterprise, markets and relatively undistorted trade
regimes. Interventionists point with equal assurance
to clever bureaucracies, non-market allocation of
resources and highly distorted trade regimes.

35.

are hoping shortly to outpace Greece and


Malta in economic growth
have definitely benefited greatly from a freetrade policy

C)

D)

unprecedented economic growth rate over
recent decades
have finally managed to throw off
bureaucratic obstacles and disprove the
theories of many economists

E)

B)

According to the passage, the so-called four


"dragons" of East Asia ----.
A)

We learn from the passage that, in just over


two decades, Taiwan ----.
became the economic model for the other
"dragons" on account of its economic success
achieved the fastest rate of economic growth
among the four East Asian "dragons"

C)

rose from a low-level per capita income


similar to that of Zaire, to a relatively high one

D)

attached far more importance to private


enterprise than any other Asian country

E)

was the only one among the "dragons"


to exploit its resources to the full

According to the passage, there is no


unanimous agreement among economists as
to ----.
A)

how far distorted trade regimes contributed to


the economic success of the four dragons"

B)

why Taiwan and Hong Kong got ahead of


Singapore and South Korea in economic
efficiency

C)

whether the growth rate of the four "dragons"


will continue steadily

D)

when the four East Asian "dragons" will catch


up with the US regarding manufactured
exports

E)

how the four East Asian "dragons" achieved


their miraculous growth rate

It is pointed out in the passage that South


Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong ---A)
B)
C)

D)
E)

export more to the US than to any other


country in the world
have been in fierce competition with each
other in the export of manufactured goods
have developed their economies in
accordance with the theory of development
economics
admit openly that they have made use of
various distorted trade regimes
export almost as many manufactured goods
between them, as does the US

Although women have made huge strides in
catching up with men in the workplace, a gender
gap still persists both in wages and levels of
advancement. Commonly cited explanations for this
gap range from charges of sex discrimination to
claims that women are more sensitive than men to
work versus family conflicts and thus less inclined
to make sacrifices for their careers. Now, however,
two new studies suggest that another factor may be
at work: a deeply ingrained difference in the way
men and women react to competition that manifests
itself even at an early age. Apparently, females tend
to be far less responsive to competition than males a tendency with important implications for women
and business. It may hurt women in highly
competitive labor markets, for example, and hamper
efficient job placement - especially for positions in
which competitiveness is not a useful trait.

We understand from the passage that, when a


choice has to be made between work and

women expect men to give the priority to the


family

D)

A)

C)

men feel they have a right to higher wages


and quicker advancement
family concerns are what drive men to work
harder and earn more
fair competition is to be encouraged while sex
discrimination is to be banned

themselves

that of men

age, about their future careers
will fight determinedly for their rights in the

The Sahara desert takes up most of Egypt's land, so


overcrowding is a huge problem. Sixty-two million
people live squeezed together into the six million
fertile acres along the Nile delta and narrow river
valley - just five per cent of the total area of Egypt.
Between 12 and 15 million people live in Cairo
alone. Until recently, it was impractical and
dangerous to even consider moving into the
southern desert, where temperatures regularly rise
above 50 C and water is scarce and can only be
reached using carefully placed irrigation wells. But
in the last 20 years a "New Valley" has slowly been
taking shape. Towns with industrial centres, tourist
areas and spacious apartment blocks are being
constructed, factories are springing up. The main
development making this possible is the
construction of the vast Sheikh Zayed canal, also
known as the Toshka canal. Named for Sheikh
Zayed al Nahya, president of the United Arab
Emirates, which is financially backing the project,
the canal is part of the irrigation scheme dreamed
up by the Egyptian government to make it possible
for people to move away from the traffic, pollution
and bustle of Cairo. If a "second Nile" cuts through
the desert and water is distributed to surrounding
land, people and crops can thrive there as they do
around the existing Nile. The area is becoming
known as the New Valley.

43.

We can conclude from the passage that the


New Valley project, which has been underway
for roughly two decades, ----.

potential of Egypt

C)

is primarily an agricultural one, and industrial


activity is not provided for

D)

is very near to completion and large numbers


of people have already moved in

E)

is proving far more problematic than was


originally foreseen

It is clearly stated in the passage that almost


the whole of Egypt's population ----,
A)

lives along the Nile Valley and its delta

B)

wants to move into the New Valley

C)

is engaged in agricultural activities rather than


in industrial ones

D)

holds Sheikh Zayed al Nahya in great esteem

E)

is dubious about the outcome of the New


Valley project

We understand from the passage that the


canal under construction ----.
A)

is designed to meet the water needs of Cairo


and other cities

B)

constitutes just a portion of a massive irrigation


project

C) will bring fertility to the whole of the Sahara


D) will irrigate only 5% of the total area of Egypt
E)

passes through an overcrowded part of the


country

As it is pointed out in the passage, one of the


benefits of the New Valley will be that ----.
A)

Egypt will change from an agricultural country


into a fully industrial one

B)

Egypt can at last start a tourist industry

C)

the overcrowding in Cairo and the Nile delta


area will be reduced

D)

the hot, dry desert climate of Egypt will be


rapidly modified

E)

it will set an example for the developed world


to invest in desert projects

When Lyndon Johnson assumed the presidency,
after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, in
November of 1963, he knew that in order to accrue
political capital he would initially need to champion
goals and policies that Kennedy had already been
pursuing. Not long before his death Kennedy had
scrawled the word "poverty" on a piece of paper and
circled it multiple times; this note fell into the hands
of his brother Robert and became a symbolic
justification for Johnson's declaration of the War on
Poverty, early in 1964. Similarly, many of the things
that Johnson pushed through Congress in his first
two years as President, can readily be seen as
extensions of the avowed policies of the Kennedy
Administration. The details might have been
different, but historians generally agree that if
Kennedy had lived out his first term and won a
second, America would have witnessed something
similar to the early years of Johnson's Great
Society. On foreign policy, too, Johnson at first
strove consciously to follow his predecessor. And
some historians have argued that in this realm as
well, Johnson indeed pursued a course that
Kennedy had already introduced. If Kennedy had
lived, according to this line of thinking, he would
have continued a policy of antagonism towards
Cuba and steady escalation of US involvement in
Vietnam. Johnson certainly believed that this was
what Kennedy intended to do.

A)

national ideal of a "Great Society"

B)

politically popular
but he soon found that they were inapplicable

E)

According to the passage, Johnson's pursuit


of the Kennedy goals and policies ----.
A)

has been condemned by several recent


historians

B)

largely occurred during the first two years of


his presidency

C)
D)

actually undermined his image as president


brought him into conflict with Congress

E)

hindered his own desire to wage a War on


Poverty

It's clear from the passage that, on assuming


the presidency, Johnson ----.
A)
B)
C)
D)
E)

48.

It is clear from the passage that initially


Johnson intended to continue the Kennedy
policies ----.

maintained amiable relations with the


Kennedys
was determined to put his own policies into
effect, and leave his own mark
took great care not to antagonize Congress
was careful not to deviate from Kennedy's
policies in international relations
chose to concentrate on foreign policy and
ignore domestic issues

As we understand from the passage, one of


the issues Kennedy was planning to tackle -A)
B)

concerned the improvement of relations


between his administration and Congress
concerned bringing to an end the antagonism
towards Cuba

C)

related to the ending of the war in Vietnam

D)

was the redefinition of the aims of US foreign


policy

E)

was the elimination of poverty in the US

The space shuttle and its rockets are huge - some
4.5 million pounds at lift-off. About 85 per cent of
that weight is fuel. Since it is designed to work in a
vacuum, the shuttle must carry not only fuel but the
oxygen to burn it. Because this is an inefficient way
to go, NASA engineers have recently tested an
engine that gets some of its oxygen on the run. This
should reduce takeoff weights by half. A spacecraft
equipped with this engine would take off like a
rocket. But within minutes, incoming air would
begin to supplement liquid oxygen. Once the
spacecraft reaches a speed of 1,500 miles per hour twice the speed of sound - the liquid oxygen would
shut off completely and the engine would burn fuel
mixed with air. Consequently the craft would
accelerate to about ten times the speed of sound.
When the air got too thin for the engine to breathe,
the ship would shift back to rocket mode to punch
its way into space.

I don't think we should look for an


explanation.
It's possibly in response to the governments
threat to intervene.
They've recently been under attack from all
sorts of quarters.
I've no idea. Have you?
Change does not necessarily mean a change
for the better.

It has been argued that people from the Far


East are better educated than Westerners and
also more experienced in economic
development
A)

Since education in the West is not up to the


standard of that in the Far East, an equal
appreciation of economic matters is not to be
expected.

B)

Apparently, people in the Far East pay more


attention to education than do those in the
West and have a better understanding of
economic matters.
Now that people in the Far East are better
educated than most Westerners, their ideas
regarding economic matters are more
sophisticated.
The argument is that the better education
received in the Far East gives people there a
better grasp of economic development than is
possible in the West.
The point has been made that people in the
West don't get as good an education as do
those in the Far East, and further, are less
accomplished in matters concerning
economic development.

Consultants of his calibre, whose advice is


consistently reliable and objective, are few and
far between.
A)
B)
C)
D)
E)

It is not often that one comes across a


consultant of his calibre, whose advice is
unfailingly dependable and unbiased.
Rarely does one find a consultant like him
whose advice is completely honest and
disinterested.
He is one of those rare consultants who one
can rely on to give absolutely fair and honest
advice.
Consultants of any calibre can always be
counted on to advise in a balanced and
professional manner.
Fair and unbiased advice is what one expects
from a consultant of his calibre, but one only
rarely gets it.

Family worries are, of course, partly


responsible for his inability to recover quickly
from the operation.

This documentary focuses on the joys and


pressures that inevitably accompany the
bringing up of a disabled child.
A)
B)
C)
D)
E)

65.

As is pointed out in the film, pain and


pleasure are both to be experienced in caring
for a crippled child.
In this feature film we are shown the trials and
pleasures that people with an abnormal child
experience.
The film highlights the pain and the pleasure
inherent in the task of bringing up a deformed
child.
The delights and strains that one is bound to
encounter when caring for a handicapped
child are at the heart of this documentary.
The documentary shows how trials and
rewards are equally forthcoming when one is
caring for an irrational child.

As a young Journalist you have been asked to


interview a well-known economist, who is
always willing to give facts but is always
reluctant to express his own opinions. You
have also been warned that he is difficult to
interview, and that you should be prepared to
flatter him. So you have prepared some
questions relating to the state of the economy
in the country. Your first question to him would
be:
A)

B)
C)

I'm sure you must have given a great deal of


thought to the economic situation here, so
would you be kind enough to share your
conclusions with the public?
Are your economic theories valid in such
apolitical situation?
How did you arrive at such a conclusion? I
can't follow the argument

63. 66. sorularda, verilen durumda sylenmi,


olabilecek sz bulunuz.

D)

Is it true that you are only prepared to deal


with facts and figures, but that you like to
keep your opinions to yourself?

63.

E)

Apparently you have recently expressed


some very pessimistic views regarding the
state of the economy. Is this so, and if so,
why?

64.

You have been forced to postpone, until


tomorrow afternoon, a departmental meeting
that you had called. You send a note, with your
apologies, round to everyone informing them
of the postponement. In your note you say:
A) It's a pity but the meeting has been
rescheduled for tomorrow afternoon.
B) Please forgive me for cancelling the meeting.
C) I've had to cancel the meeting; I hope it hasn't
inconvenienced you.
D) Sorry! I've had to put the meeting off until
tomorrow afternoon.
E) I couldn't avoid rescheduling the meeting.
Hope it's convenient for everyone.

66.

As the public relations director of a clothing


company you are concerned about the recent
drop in sales and feel this is due partly to the
quality of the clothes but mostly to inadequate
advertising. At the board meeting you want to
draw attention to the seriousness of the
situation and insist that a new, dynamic,
advertising campaign must be launched to
boost sales. You say:
A)
B)

C)
D)
E)

As a member of a charity society you have


organized a fund-raising dinner for the society.
You want to invite a well-known author to give
a talk at the dinner. You know this author
rarely does such a thing; so, you are a little
hesitant as you phone to invite him. You say:
A)
B)

C)

I'm hoping that the drop in sales will be easily


remedied by an increase in advertising.
I would like to point out to you all that the
recent drop in sales is likely to be of short
duration; so the present level of advertising
can continue.
Obviously the poor quality of our clothes is at
fault, so we need to improve our production
methods.
The drop in sales is certainly discouraging, so
let's allocate more money for further
advertising.
To my mind, the company's performance in
sales is most disquieting and a vast
advertising drive is urgently required.

D)

E)

I'm sure you'll agree to join us at our fundraising dinner, won't you?
As the dinner is for charity, I've been
wondering if you would be so kind, just this
once, as to address the guests.
I know you're a great speaker at charity
dinners, so can I count on you to come to
ours?
Please let me know in advance the topic of
the talk you are going to give at our charity
dinner.
You do realize, don't you, that the dinner is
being given in aid of charity. Your presence at
the dinner would attract more people.

year for Israel in terms of suicide bombings

Moreover, notions of what constitutes value in


a work of art are notably subjective
Since it relies on camouflage and deception,
it is an act that is both daring and self-denying
Similarly, no one motive directs a
forger's actions
Indeed, the first recorded case of art forgery
involved Albrecht Drer and an Italian artist of
his time
Two and a half centuries of classical-art
scholarship have given experts an array of
reliable tools with which to assess forgery
